What i don't get it is why the hell Samsung makes metallic phones for all the OS-es but Android. Look back and you'll see there isn't any metallic body Andorid phones. But they have shitloads of WinMo and Bada phones with metallic body. Makes no sense at all.
who listens to FM radio in 2012? Internet radio FTW! and guys, stop complaining here, it's pretty much useless.
•Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and EDR, file transfers??
Gizmodo said there is no BT file transfer in WP8!
Good review, hopefully Lumia 920's review will be coming soon as well. I am tilting towards buying the Nokia at this moment.
Again that plastic...at least the back of the phone shud hav been a real brushed aluminium..i have a gs2 and love it for its functionality but also feel dat samsung shud really start focussing on the build quality..
Camera is actually worse than s3, not by much but windows JPEG compresion is awful.
is same as paint , it destroy photos
I think this phone will also fall on its face like the omnia ...it is hard to digest an androidless samsung !
Confirmed no FM Radio supported ?
Omg. Look like All Windows phone 8 does not have this.
What a shame.
Yawn! Still a boring OS with nothing to offer, not to mention the apps....wich are horrible and freaking expensive( 15£ for a compass app??? Are u kidding me?). No matter what hardware it packs the os is killing it. Just another boring ios clone, and just as innovative as apple. We bring u resizable tiles! It s more than a tile it s a resizable one....and this changes everything, again! Bottom line is that u can spend your hard earned money on a more mature os,wp is just not worth that kind of cash.
GSMArena how bout a benchmark(like android benchmarks) of all windows 8 phones......especially ativ S vs HTC 8X HD vs Nokia lumia 920
..really ugly button .... looks old fashioned in design ..not at all appealing

"Unfortunately there is no FM radio on the Samsung Ativ S. The Samsung Galaxy S III does have an FM receiver so its absence here can either be down to the drivers not being ready yet, or the chipset transplant leading to the axing of the feature."
I read somewhere that Windows Phone 8 removed FM support as prior OS supported it.
My 1st choice is still the Nokia Lumia 920 but this looks like a sweet 2nd contender
